A While

Wait here with me a while, in silence
Speak only with eyes that cannot lie
Let joy extend its way up your spine
Peace make a home alongside mine

Stay here with me a while, in love
Speak only with hands that cannot lie
Let joy wrap itself around your heart
Peace still the stormy gusts of fear

Lay here with me a while, in gratitude
Speak only with lips that cannot lie
Let joy cast a light on dark shadows
Peace wipe the last tear from your eye
